Ski Link Just a Rush to Boost Property Values?By Rocky Thompson on October 17th, 2012
This photo posted on the Stop Ski Link Now Facebook page purports to detail just where the Ski Link would pick up at the Canyons and where you’d have to park your car at the Canyons resort to get to Ski Link. If accurate, it’s perhaps the most logical argument I’ve seen against the development of Ski Link.
Stop Ski Link Now offers an explanation of the placement of the towers that would connect Big Cottonwood and Park City (this is abridged, to see the full version, visit them on Facebook):
“This picture shows where you park at Canyons Resort and where you will board SkiLink, if Talisker’s efforts are successful. Does this look like a transportation solution between Park City and Big Cottonwood Canyon? Who in Park City, planning on skiing in Big Cottonwood Canyon, is going to pay for a Canyons lift ticket and take the 5+ lifts necessary to get to SkiLink (and on to BCC), when it would be cheaper and faster to drive to BCC?
Doesn’t it seem more likely that SkiLink is about serving the owners of the multi-million dollar properties in the area (lots alone start north of $1,000,000), who will have a lift from their subdivision directly to Solitude Mountain Resort and some of the best skiing in North America?”
